We are the Ducommuns! There are 4 of us now-Craig, Laura, Zamara, and now Mahashavah, our 1 year old son. We adopted Zamara from Ethiopia in 2008. Our son is also from Ethiopia and we are hoping to bring him home soon. We live Flagstaff Arizona. We are so glad you found us. Take a look around and don't forget to leave us a message.

Season's Greetings!

Season's Greetings.....What does that mean anyway?  That phrase just annoys me.  What ever happened to Merry Christmas and Happy Thanksgiving?  Season's Greetings is like someone saying "regards" to you.  Who says that?  

Ok, boy, I just got so excited there.  

My younger sister and parents were here for Thanksgiving over the past few days.  All of them have left over the last 24 hours so I thought I would go ahead and talk trash about them now that they are gone....Ok, here it goes....My little sister---man, could she be any more perfect?  She is like the most amazing person I have ever known.  I have no idea what happened to her but she is one of the nicest, kindest and most godly people I have ever known.  Seriously, if you haven't met her your life is not complete.  

And then there's my parents.  They really love their family.  They always make an effort to see us (even before we got them a beautiful granddaughter!).  I really appreciate all the times they have come down to see us in Flagstaff.  I am sure their trips will become even more frequent now that Zamara is here.  Posted above this are a few pics of our time together.  I think, at times, Grandma and I were having a competition for who could take the most pix.  I'm pretty sure I won...

Oh, I almost forgot.  We ate a whole bunch of M&M's brand chocolate candies.  And we ate at a restaurant named "Wendy's" but did not have a milkshake named a "Frosty".   (You had to be there)

Wow, this is getting long.  The most important part of this post is that I finally got a picture of Zamara's "poo face".  This has been like getting a picture of the Loch Ness monster but I finally got it.   Her eyes watering up, a constipated smile look.  It's hard to describe.  I am guessing you will be able to pick out the pic I am referring to.  That will be our little game for this post.  Pick out the pic  from the ones above that is Zamara's "poo face".  Hint:  It's the first picture.

Season's Greetings!  

Craig, Laura and Zamara

Hilarious! I'm sorry that I didn't get to come. The minute I saw that first picture, I was HOPING that was a picture of her "taking a dump" as we say in our house. Otherwise, that is just really not an attractive picture. It cracks me up that you have now posted photos of her pooping in the sink and her taking a dump on your blog.
